A brief break from my trial chronicles to report:
Yesterday WWL aired a report on a Lakeview family whose Doberman was shot and killed by NOPD officers responding to a security alarm that had been accidently tripped. The dog in question, which police claim they had to shoot in order to save their own lives, was recovering from spinal surgery which required that his owners carry him in and out of the house and up and down the stairs. The most disturbing part of this disturbing story is that the police shot the dog EIGHT times. Good thing they weren't startled by a child.
